Overwatch 2 launched on October 4, and since then, thousands of players have been having fun with its wide selection of characters, maps, and more.

Unfortunately, not every player has a working mic or headset to give some direction to team plays. This is why we will show you how to ping on consoles and PC on Overwatch 2.

To use the ping feature on a PC, players will press the G key on their keyboards or the scroll wheel on their mouse. This will get you access to this helpful feature, allowing you to bring some attention to an enemy or side of the map that your teammates are ignoring. If players are not comfortable using the G key or the scroll wheel on their mouse, they can always go to their settings and bind another key to this action.
